Please call or text us at 201-816-8343 or email us at  We’re available to answer your questions, accept your application, and complete your child’s placement and enrollment.

Summary of our enrollment process: 

We take applications throughout the year.  We’re now in a period of rolling admissions for September 2020.

We have full-day and half-day Montessori programs openings available for children born after October 15, 2013 and before May 1, 2018 including:

  • For ages 5 & 6 years old: our mixed age Montessori Kindergarten program (full-day, half-day)
  • For ages 30 months to 4 years old: our mixed age Montessori Pre-Primary program (full-day or half-day)

To be considered for placement, families submit a paid application (download here) and visit the school for a tour.

You can find our 2020-21 tution rates here.   But do come visit, to find out why The Montessori House is so special and a great value!

We offer tours most school days.  Tours are most informative  when the classroom is filled with students and teachers.  Consequently, we prefer to conduct tours when classes are in session.  A personal, private tour  usually take about 45 minutes, with a generous amount of time in one or two classrooms — depending on your child’s age, we will show you the program they would enter initially, but also show you the programs available in future years.

Note, if you have childcare available, you may prefer to schedule a time to visit without your child.  In our experience, visiting parents get the most from their time observing in our classrooms when they don’t have to also keep an eye on a toddler.   But, if that’s not convenient for you, we want you to visit and are happy to have your child accompany you tor a tour.

We generally schedule tours to start between 9:00 and 10:15 in the morning, or around 1:00 in the afternoon.  You may schedule a personal tour by texting/calling us at 201-816-8343.  Or, we’ll contact you: e-mail us at with your phone number and your child’s birth date, and we’ll reach out to schedule a visit.

We urge families interested in entering September 2020 to act now: schedule a school visit and submit an application .
